In the photographer's words: "Boudhanath is the largest Buddhist temple in Nepal and lies in the heart of Kathmandu. Visiting this religious site that is so foreign to my own faith but so captivating and beautiful helped me realize that we all have a common desire – to have someone watching over us. After the insane hustle and bustle that is Kathmandu's nature, resting a little at the foot of this temple was wonderfully peaceful and a memory that I will carry with me for a long time."
